He has a point.

If the NFL cared about player safety, they would stop them from violently smashing their heads together.

And the only thing official reviews are good for is stopping the action.  Watching paint dry is more exciting.

Deserved penalty and Tomlin seems to agree, but do we normally get penalties thrown 10-15 seconds after the incident in question?

Quasar: Deserved penalty and Tomlin seems to agree, but do we normally get penalties thrown 10-15 seconds after the incident in question?


In the Nevada v Toledo game over the weekend, the officials called for a replay just prior to Toledo's next snap. Despite the Wolfpack player already leaving his feet before the receiver crouched down, a nine minute review determined targeting and the Nevada player ejected. One of four official reviews, all four went against the home squad.

Why Omar?  Why?  Was House that mean to you?

It happened to the Steelers, fark em. Gay is almost as dirty as Vontaze Burfict. They should both be out of the league

No puns intended, but Tomlin loves Gay. Rumor has it their wives are BFFs.

This. It's not that he shouldn't have been penalized, it's that they basically had to look at the replay to figure out what they missed. That's Browns-level ineptitude on the ref's part.

I'm no fan of Tomlin but he has a good point. Refs shouldn't be calling penalties off the jumbotron and subby's headline is misleading.

That being said, fark you Tomlin. You're the head coach. You hire the assistant coaches. This isn't a new problem with pre snap penalties and penalties overall. How about you show some professionalism and coach these guys? Jesus farking christ.

Meh. Probably 3/4 of the coaches in the league with she with him, if not more.

As for the penalties it seems like every team gets this same philosophy at some point but there's a fine line between success and disaster and it's hard to pull off. The dominant Seahawks defense of 2-3 years ago was playing the 'play aggressive, time the snap, hold,  hit harder - they won't call them all and the plusses will more than cancel out the penalties' style of defense. Carroll as much as said they expected to get a of lot of penalties playing that style and he was cool with it. It worked really farking well. I just think it's easier said than done and you gotta have the right guys pushing it at the right time. They didn't invent it. I think it's hard to do and may not pay off.

"Obviously, the officials used the scoreboard as a determining factor in the calling of the penalty. We may not agree with this but we embrace it. It is what it is. We accept it and move on."

Unfortunately in the NFL it is pretty common after the 6th official meeting on the field.

Yeah, the other three took about the same amount of time to get wrong. Would be fine if there was a call on the field, but it was basically for bonus time outs and big momentum changers for Toledo.

Subby his point was that it WASN'T a video replay. The play ended, they watched it on the jumbotron, THEN called a penalty. They are very much not supposed to do that.

"Hey, if they didn't call the dirty play immediately, then my guy is supposed to away with it! The refs aren't allowed to make sure they get it right."

this guy is a piece of shiat
